Is it Better to Train Alone or in a Group?
There is no definitive answer to this because it is entirely subjective. It is important to remember that there are advantages and disadvantages to both types of sessions.
As mentioned, one to one personal training gives you more attention and time with your PT, and many people love being able to focus completely on themselves during their workouts. However, it can sometimes be difficult to motivate yourself to go to the gym when its just yourself.
Some people find Group Personal Training motivates them more – as you will interact with others and build friendships, which can last long after the end of your personal training program. These friendships can be a motivation to get ready and head to the gym!
Group training can also be more motivating when you’re actually working out, as it can encourage friendly competition! People are also less likely to quit when others are around. So there are many social benefits from small group PT.
However, some people simply prefer to train alone. It really just comes down to the kind of person you are, rather than any particular advantage or disadvantage.

Is One Session Per Week Enough?
Every training session at Nxtep is 1 hour long, and many people are happy with one training session per week. While this is true for some people, it isn’t necessarily true for everyone else, and it depends on your individual goals and ambitions.
The simple fact is, the more you train, the quicker you will see results. Obviously, the more you are training, the more time you have to dedicate to it, which may not work for everyone with the busy lifestyles we have these days, which is why we offer the option of 1, 2 or 3 training sessions per week. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide how often you want to train.
